While i was walking through the streets of Firenze last week, i came across a contemporary art gallery, entered because that’s what art bloggers are supposed to do and discovered the work of Ericailcane
At the Biagiotti Progetto Arte gallery: La lepre, 2007
Ericailcane makes etchings, graphic art, street art (most notably in collaboration with street artist Blu as demonstrated in this video), animations, sculptures, installations, tattoos and loads of drawings. Inspired by Victorian children’s illustrations, the works are often macabre but never sad. They depict animals dressed like human in surreal situations.
Installation for Santa’s Ghetto, London, 2006
On view at the Biagiotti Progetto Arte Gallery through January, 18, 2008 in Florence, Italy.
